If the monitor comes on and displays a message like "no input signal" or something similar, it's working properly but there is nothing coming from the computer. People often think that the computer is working and the monitor is at fault, when in fact the computer isn't starting up.

When you turn on the computer, do you hear the normal sounds of the power supply fan running and the hard drive spinning? Most computers will give a beep when they turn on and the motherboard finishes some startup checks. Do you hear that? Do you ever hear the normal startup sounds that mean Windows is actually running?

If you are convinced the computer is starting and booting into Windows, I would suggest you borrow a known good monitor to use as a test. If it works, that obviously means yours is bad. In most cases there's nothing you can do to repair a monitor yourself beyond checking for loose connections, bent pins in the signal cable plug, or a damaged cable.

If a known good monitor still has no image, the computer is at fault. Either the video card or integrated video isn't working, or the computer isn't actually starting up. In any case, that's where you would need to start looking for the cause.

Hope this helps you along the way to solving the problem. Thanks fo using Fixya!

How can I resolve the B1681 problem

the PATS tranceiver signal is the radio signal sent by your key to the Passive Anti Theft System. if you're setting that code, then either your PCM doesn't recognize the key you used to try to start your car, or your key has gone bad. it could also be the transceiver itself (sensor mounted around the ignition cylinderon the steering column) gone bad. good luck

When we turn to the tv to "av" we usually get signal for WII, but now it says "no signal"

Make sure your video connections are correct and make sure any external video selectors are set to the correct input. If the wii is connected directly to the AV input in the TV then check your resolution settings on the TV if possible. Try a known good wii audio/video cable to see if it has gone bad. If it still doesn't work after that then the audio video port on the back of the wii may have gone bad or the wii motherboard may have gone bad.

I get an error message. No signal. Shutting down with both my computers. I bought a new cable but that didn't help.

By shutting down do you mean you get a signal then it goes to no signal, or does it just show no signal regardless of what PC it's on? It sounds like you have display and backlight to see the no signal message so I would guess that the board inside that takes incoming video and sends it to the display has gone bad, or a component gone bad. Anymore electronics get 2 to 4 yrs old and electrolytic capacitors swell or burst on top causing problems from totally dead to weird errors that seem like something else. It just comes out of the blue too, most time no advance warning. Without getting inside the monitor to check it's hard to tell but someone that does bench repair should catch it if there are swollen or leaking capacitors especially if you mention fr them to check for them. If not then it's possible the video display chip has gone bad and a new board is needed. Probably not available anywhere but a seller that parts out working off lease equipment such as on ebay. You've already done what you should by trying a new cable and trying on more than one machine.

Turn signals in front don't work

the lowers being gone DOES affect the front ones, as they work on a closed circuit. Until you replace them, you'll have no front signail lights.

My 1990 Isuzu Amigo's trun signals have gone out. No dash lights, no clicking, no power at the corners when I use the lever---is it a turn signal switch gone bad?

That little truck was my first. Be good to it. It'll be good to you.

Check the relay beneath the steering column. Mine went out, too. Try to snag an OEM one, as third-party ones tend to flash too fast.

Turn signals have quit working

Many times the turning signals will quit because a bulb has gone out. Have the bulbs checked first.

2002grand am daytime running lights

99 - 04 grand am.

I had the "service vehicle soon" light come twice with in 1 year. First the heald light bulbs were gone. Replaced the head light bulbs and after 2 starts the "service vehicle soon" light was gone.

The second time the DRL - #194 amber bulbs were gone. Replaced these and the "service vehicle soon" light was gone after 2 starts. The DRLs are housed in the headlamp housing, the tiny bulbs beside the head light.
